"Life is hard! Life is filled with hurts and heartaches. But how do we navigate all of these ups and downs on an emotional level? That question is what led me into wanting to help others navigate life's painful experiences. I had to learn myself how to manage anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma, and grief. I now consider it a privilege to walk alongside someone else who feels like life can be overwhelming. I use faith-based principles, along with traditional cognitive behavior therapy, and a personal favorite, humor, to work with you in finding what coping mechanisms help you view life in a more positive light."
